he was leaving for the sea not to return
said to forget his love like i never learned
beating over my heart when i saw his face
said to focus my love in some other place

i can't be your reason to stay
even if i knew of every perfect word to say
that ships gonna sail so far away
when it does i'll regret every day

well i cried for weeks and didn't sleep for months
tried to forget that i had ever loved
about some careless boy who would leave my side
at the drop of a hat cause he couldn't swallow his pride

i can't be your reason to stay
even if i knew of every perfect word to say
that ships gonna sail so far away
when it does i'll regret every day

but when you don't come back
oh i'll understand
and i'll give my heart to some other man
every time i'll look out at that empty sea
i just hope you're as lonely, as lonely as me

i can't be your reason to stay
even if i knew of every perfect word to say
that ships gonna sail so far away
and when it does i'll regret every day
